SF Chefs in the City - Chefs and Restaurants

SF Chefs 2012 - The Tasting TentLast year was our first time to attend a SF Chef Food and Wine Tasting Tent event and we absolutely enjoyed it.  This year, we decided to do it again. 

Having learned lessons like pacing ourselves especially with the wines, this years we were able to sample almost every restaurant featured during the Saturday afternoon grand tent tasting.
